Since acquiring Mobile Viewpoint last month, Vislink has moved quickly to consolidate the operations of the two organizations. A key focus has been the integration of their respective product lines through advanced interoperability testing and other shared engineering initiatives. The announcement represents the first jointly-developed product offering brought to market by the combined companies.
“We are excited to introduce a class-leading bonded cellular service that addresses the real needs of live news and sports production professionals,” said Mickey Miller pictured, CEO of Vislink. “There is a requirement in this market for robust REMI production solutions that are both reliable and cost-effective. Our solution is first and foremost quality-based, while also providing attractive financing and data plan options that fit different budget requirements, from day-to-day ENG productions to occasional use. With the launch of this bonded cellular offering, we are now able to offer an unmatched array of hybrid network options, both private and public, including COFDM, fiber, satellite and public IP. This gives live producers unparalleled flexibility to effectively deliver their content while optimizing their workflows.”
He added, “As the industry moves toward 5G, and the demand for premium-quality, low latency, live video transmissions increases, we will continue to leverage Mobile Viewpoint’s innovations in bonded cellular, 5G and AI-powered automated production to provide compelling, market-focused solutions.”
Recently, Vislink participated in the world’s first standalone 5G network introduced in MotoGP™️. At the British GP, BT Sport, Dorna, Vislink & the University of Strathclyde showcased a private 5G network for sports broadcasting.
Miller concluded, “Our longstanding relationships in the news, sports and entertainment sectors are extremely important to us, and are central to our success. We look forward to expanding on our reputation as a global leader in live video solutions.”
